We don't have a specific budget for groceries at our house. We recognize that there are weeks where we stock up and weeks where we eat from our stockpile and only pick up a couple of items. This week I did my shopping early, to get a number of things I needed for the Land O' Lakes House Party. I got my regular weekly groceries as well. It was a pretty average week.
At our house, we don't eat breakfast or lunch together during the week, so there is minimal planning that goes into those meals. For us, the focus is dinner.
Hot Dogs/Oven Ready Macaroni & Cheese (leftover from last night)
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
Hazelnut French Toast
Cube Steaks and Rice
Out with company
Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me. My son either packs or buys lunch at school. If he packs, it is generally a lunch meat sandwich or a PB&J with some sides.
